GALACTIC and Charles Bradley at the Electric Factory
Formerly an actual factory, the Electric Factory has become the premier concert venue for Philadelphia, and on February 8th they’ll be hosting the undefinable GALACTIC. The all-ages event will also feature Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires as the opening act. Charles Bradley may have struggled for his success, even performing as a James Brown impersonator, but he has become known for his throwback style of ’60s, ’70s funk and soul.
Mostly known for their jazz-funk vibe, GALACTIC has seen growing success since they started in New Orleans back in the ‘90s. On their latest album released in 2012, Carnivale Electricos, the party-atmosphere of Mardi Gras can’t be denied. With each album, the band continuously evolves their sound, incorporating different genres and technical effects. Their experimental nature has worked in their favor, but this jam band will never abandon their funk core.
The show starts at 8:30 and advance tickets are available for under $40.00.
